Subject: Wonderful and weird.

Just a note to people that are confused by the name. This is a player only and the format required an expensive process to make the reels and it more resembled film.

Here is more information on the format:

Awkwardedly hosted demo for EVR, which was a reel to reel film based player, at least. The more I think about it, the more suspicious I become. Anyways, this was a very interesting precursor to the home VCR, albeit with totally different technology. It's demonstrated ok here. The cartridge could hold 2 30 minute recordings on either side, The film fails to show how recordings are done though, or whether it was possible at home. I mean, if people wanted a reel with Mission Impossible and a rambling Robert Frost speech on it, theyre in luck. The host was curious, seemed to get more disttracted and taking these weird little pauses, which became longer as the film went on. Great little curiousity.

..if they didn't get a guy with a South Boston accent to sell it. "E-V-Ahhhh!"
